Class 3 Curriculum Letter - Spring 2018

Dear Parents,

First of all I would like to wish you a very Happy New Year and I hope that you have had a great Christmas. Outlined below is a summary of the areas of learning that Class 3 will be covering this term. This term’s topic is Britain since 1948. Class 3 will be investigating what every-day life was like in post-war Britain and how it has changed through the decades. The children will also be looking at the changing trends in music, fashion and pastimes; how working life has changed; changes in population; and advances in technology. This time period is also home to some amazing people and events and the children will have the opportunity to explore some of these historic milestones.

Our topic will start with a cookery lesson where the class 3 will prepare and sample meals made only with ingredients available during rationing. From there we will work our way through the decades, ending with a quick look to the future at where some of this decade’s breakthroughs could take us. Throughout the topic, the children will be gathering information which they will bring together in the form of a multi-media presentation. Throughout our English lessons we will investigate key figures since 1948 in the form of autobiographies and biographies, the use of instructions that present detailed guidelines as well as looking at the difference between formal and informal writing. Class 3 will also evaluate reports, information texts and create comparisons for a travel catalogue along with writing stories & poetry associated with key events since the 1940s. We have also entered the Ryedale Debating competition based on ‘Is Social Media a danger to children?’ so be looking out for debaters coming home!

In Maths the children will use steps to solve word problems, look at number equations and be able to use their multiplication skills to work on all Maths based activities, particularly when using fractions decimals and percentages. They will also learn about algebra, graphs, space and measurement whilst also producing 2D work based on the properties of shape. We will continually use the online system, MyMaths, and another maths resource, Abacus, throughout maths lessons so that children can learn in a variety of ways.

In Science this term our topic is electricity. We will begin with a revision of simple circuits and then we will have lots of hands on experience with symbols, diagrams & incomplete circuits. We will inquire about the length of wire in a circuit, the use of cells, compare series & parallel circuits whilst doing lots of practical experiments. In RE this half term, the children will study about key inspirational leaders, including looking in depth at influential people like Martin Luther King.

Anti-Bullying Week; Internet Safety in Class 3 - Nov 2017

“On Monday 13 November Anti-Bullying Week 2017 began. Class 3 began to learn a lot about cyber-bullying, so bullying over the Internet and through other forms of social media. Cyber bullying, like personal bullying, can upset the victims of it. A place to report behaviour like this is CEOP. It stands for Child Exploitation and Online Protection. If you are getting bullied over the Internet (cyber-bullied) report it to CEOP and everything will be sorted out quickly. That is what Class 3 has been learning about a lot this week.

“Class 3 started off by having a debate on ‘should children stand up or walk away from bullying and also making a Power Point on cyber-bullying. They researched a lot about CEOP and how cyber-bullies bully and upset people on the Internet. On Wednesday the 15/11 they had a visitor called Mr Conroy who talked to them about cyber-bullying and how they think. After that, on the same day, they designed a super-hero who fights bullies and cyber-bullies. They all created one, all of them unique, and then, the day after, Thursday; they wrote a story in English about their bully-fighting super-hero. Then, right at the end of the week, they looked at what all the other classes had been doing this week in the Friday assembly in the morning. All of the classes have been looking at a phrase this year:

“All different, all equal”. They based a lot of posters and artwork of bullies and cyber-bullies, this week.

“Overall, it has been a very fun week. They all learned about bullies and cyber-bullies and what to do and all sorts. The week was from Monday 13th November 2017 to Friday 17 November 2017.”
